Gartner’s 2016 Magic Quadrant for BI and Analytics Platforms report states: “The evolution and sophistication of the self-service data preparation and data discovery capabilities available in the market has shifted the focus of buyers in the BI and analytics platform market toward easy-to-use tools that support a full range of analytic workflow capabilities and do not require significant involvement from IT to pre-define data models upfront as a prerequisite to analysis.”

The first “Innovative BI in Action” session on Sunday, March 13, led by Gartner Research Director Josh Parenteau, is designed to recognize and showcase four emerging trends in the BI & Analytics space that align to Gartner’s Hype Cycle categories and Predicts research. ClearStory was selected to showcase at the session, and will be first company to present.
